This season features four divisions: advanced, competitive, intermediate and recreational. These skills-based divisions help create a smaller skills gaps between players within each division. During the registration process, players will have the option to request a specific division. It is recommended that players select multiple division to minimize the chance of being left out during the team draft process. For example, if a registrant only selects advanced division during registration, and is not drafted by an Advanced Division team captain, the player will not be eligible to be drafted by a competitive division team captain.
During the draft process, team captains use ratings to select their players. The advanced division team captains select their players from the pool of eligible players until all 7 slots are full. Next, the competitive division team captains begin fill slots on their teams from the remaining players until all slots are full. The process is repeated for the intermediate and recreational divisions. Players that selected to play in a specific division and were not drafted onto teams in those divisions will be provided a full refund.Register Online Visit website Facebook Page
